's report from the obama administration's perspective, roger altman, chairman of evercore partner, now a supporter of the obama campaign joining us from seattle. great to see you. first of all the jobs number and the view from wall street of this, this economy kind of bumping along on the basement, but is it really a turn around at this stage? >> well, today's numbers are just good across the board. as greg gibbs said, not only did we add jobs, but the work week expanded and incomes expanded. and i think it shows that the president's economic policies are working. we've now had 31 straight months of private sector job growth, that's 5.2 million jobs. and we're moving in the right direction. and changing course now to go back to the policies that got us into this mess in the first place doesn't make any sense at all. >> you've been through a lot of presidential debates, you've watched them in the past, you were involved with the hillary clinton campaign last time around and this time, of course, with president obama. let's talk about the president obama who showed up. who was that man w
. what happened there, who may be responsible and what the obama administration has said about it is a growing issue in the presidential campaign. and after a syrian shell landed in turkey on wednesday killing five women on impact and then turkey fired back, the turkish parliament today approved possible broader military action against syria. this is one to watch. turkey says this is not a declaration of war, but a warning that turkey will defend itself. syria has now apologized notably, but this incident has raised grounded fears of a wider war. our eamon mowadean is on the ground tonight in turkey. we've put some of his reporting on our website tonight. >>> still ahead as we continue, new research this evening about a chemical we all come in contact with that has raised questions before. this time, the concern is about mothers and their babies. and later, an extraordinary view of the world like we've never seen it before. >>> in health news, as promised, the suggest's been getting a lot of attention lately. a chemical in plastics called bpa and concerns now how it could cause
administration is spending to get you to love obama care. could a simple blood test help spot early signs of breast cancer. researchs are working on that. we have details in today's heal -- fox health fix. >> doctors know the first james bond movie that was released way back in 1962. >> she thought i was dead. but i proceeded to prove her wrong. but things are starting to turn around because of business people like you. and regions is here to help. with the experience and service to keep things rolling. from business loans to cash management, we want to be your partner moving forward. so switch to regions. and let's get going. together. >> according to delta dental the average gift from the tooth fairy is up 2.10. it's up from 1.48. it's now $2.10. if only president obama had had this information last night for the debate. no, he could prove the 5-year-old toothless kid is better off today than he was 4 years ago. >> kids are a lot better off nowadays aren't they? welcome back to "fox & friends first". i am heather nauert. >> i am heather childers. i remember getting a quarter. it is 31 a
said about half the energy companies supported by the obama administration going bankrupt. he didn't actually mean that. sort of rolled over from democratic and liberal bewilderment last night that mr. romney was abandoning his main economic plan that he was running on, his $5 trillion tax cut plan, his big trickle-down plan, to be rolled over from democrats being bewildered about that to the beltway press and mainstream pundits i think now having a hard time deciding whether they are supposed to call that a lie or whether they're supposed to just say this is a radically new position for the candidate and welcome to it. joining us now, jonathan alter, columnist for "bloomberg news" and msnbc political analyst. mr. alter, great to have you here. >> hi, rachel. >> how does president obama counter the strategy of mitt romney's to unveil whole new ideas or deny he ever held the ideas that he plainly has held? it's one thing to have a truth squad fact checking online. how do you counter that at the podium? >> one is i'm rubber, you're glue, bounces off and sticks to you. trickle-down, t
the obama administration manipulated the numbers. but on cnbc, labor secretary hilda solis called that claim "ludicrous" and defended the bureau of labor statistics. >> you know, i'm insulted when i hear that,ecause we have a very professional civil service organization where you have top, top economists that work at the b.l.s. >> brown: the employment numbers landed as the campaigns put up new ads attacking each other on jobs and taxes. >> president obama says he's creating jobs. but he's really creating debt. the facts are clear. obama's four deficits are the four largest in u.s. history. he's adding almost as much debt as all 43 previous presidents combined. and over 30 cents of every dollar obama spends is borrowed, much of it from countries like china. he's not just wasting money; he's borrowing it and then wasting it. we can't afford four more years. >> why won't romney level with us about his tax plan, which gives the wealthy huge new tax breaks? because, according to experts, he'd have to raise taxes on the middle class, or increase the deficit to pay for it. if we can't trust him he
. and what a second term obama administration would look like. and what it would do for middle class americans all over this country. i think we achieved that. i think what we didn't expect is for that mitt romney to show up. i know mitt romney is an aggressive debater, a great debater, in his own words. was one of the things he used as a credential to becoming the republican nominee. we didn't expect him to be aggressively dishonest last night. >> was the president taken by the number of lies? >> well, you know, i think that, you know, today looking back at last night, you saw what the president did on the stump today. called mitt romney out for what he did last night. not just about his $5 trillion tax cut but a number of other things. and, you know, we'll continue doing that. as i was listening to your piece coming into me, and you talked about our ad. we went on the air today. we're going to continue doing it pointing out all the things mitt romney said last night that are basically not true. it's almost as if he forgot what the last six years of running for president meant. >> y
talked about cutting tacks for the middle class. obviously the obama administration takes issue with it and says it isn't true. do you think this could be enough, if mitt romney could make the case for him to win the election? >> i think it's a very important point. remember why he wants to have the tax reform he wants. it's to make sure that the united states grows better than we've seen in the past four years. and what mr. romney is trying to say is, look, we have all these people out of work. we have all these people with jobs whose incomes are not growing. let's lower rates, broaden the base, be respectful of the middle class and the deficit by but have a better tax policy in place. it's good positions for him. the president can't even get the first step right. instead of lowering rates and broadening the base, he is insisting on raising taxes. that's a bit of a tough sell right now. it was the same president who, in 2010, said we can't afford to raise taxes on anyone. the economy is too weak. we're growing faster then than we are now. >> how big an issue could it be for dem
the line the obama administration used in 31 of the past 33 months. it's important to not read too much into one month's jobs report. in light of that we look at these numbers, some are part-time but how about the halloween costume stores? any time it goes down it's good news. the divergence between the household and the establishment a little weird. >> right. >> you know, one of those things you'll take good news anywhere you can get it. i would be a little wary about anything that looks like spiking the football on this, excessively celebration. obama can't go out there and say upon my orders we hunted down and killed the 8% unemployment rate. >> and republicans sanity seem seem -- can't seem to be too dour. >> i'm going to get a break in. david plouffe is next. the political panel will stick around. but first what is david plouffe going to eat after the interview? white house soup of the day is tomato base ill. follow the show on facebook. you're watching "daily rundown" on msnbc. i took dayquil, but i still have a runny nose. [ male announcer ] dayquil doesn't treat that. huh? [ mal
and this just isn't enough? >> that's, of course, why the obama administration is not spiking the ball tonight. but we are finally beginning to clean up the mess that was created under the bush administration and the blind eye that was turned to wall street, and, of course, romney is trying to change his story, too. in the debate he said, oh, i'm not against regulating wall street. really? they're for repealing the dodd/frank bill, creating the stage that would actually take us back to where we were at the hemorrhaging of jobs. we're finally beginning to turn the corner. >> when we look at what we saw on wednesday night, the president certainly under fire for this less than dynamic performance, some questioning whether he entered this debate under prepared and over confident. as we pointed out at the top of the show, you are vice chair of the obama campaign, did you president underestimate his opponent and did it take the wind out of your sails for the work you're doing for the president to get re-elected. >> i'll tell you what, it's really hard to argue against somebody who shows up with tota
the obama administration to a second term to be anywhere near negotiating with a bat government called the united nations on our freedom? not a one of them have a bill of rights like the united states of america. they are about government. there gun plan is to turn over your firearms and protections to the government. the government will protect you. does anyone think that will happen? that you end plan is about global agencies monitoring, surveillance, lists, all institutionalized within the bureaucracy of the united nations with a permanent funding mechanism largely paid for by u.s. taxpayers. nowhere do they talk about due process, privacy, individual rights, freedom, a bill of rights. what we are about here in the united states of america. i guarantee you this, if your glass bricks at 2:00 at night from a criminal, you all know the baby blue helmets from the u.n. will not be there to protect the. and neither will president obama or eric holder. what will protect you is the freedom we have under the second amendment of the constitution. there is not a government or an authority on t
the obama administration tried to do that the last four years and we have seen ideas from the ronny administration. romney administration. host: how large a role this manufacturing plant in the u.s.? -- does manufacturing play in the u.s.? guest: a lot of people feel like it is is dying industry in america, but take a look at the numbers. the u.s. still the world's largest manufacturer. manufacturing comprises 11.7% of gross domestic product. manufacturing comprises 9% of total u.s. employment. and it is directly employing 10.9 million workers in the u.s. host: we are going to get into the numbers and look at how things like 9% total employment have changed at the last couple of decades. mr. morath, let me ask about the kinds of manufacturing done. surely that has changed the last couple of decades. guest: we have a fairly robust automotive industry, but there are a number of different areas where things have changed and could change further, such as increasing energy production -- oil, gas, refining. host: this chart is from the bureau of labor statistics, a sister agency, but they
. >> it was obviously not safe to have him there and i think the state department and the obama administration really owes the american people a full, frank revelation of what they knew, when they knew it -- >> steve: before the election. >> before the election. >> gretchen: maybe it will come up in the next debate when they talk about foreign affairs. >> it should and i'm positive that mitt romney will be extremely prepared and will take it to the president, what did you know on tuesday? what did you know on wednesday or thursday? >> brian: also the town hall format. i think it works for the president. >> steve: okay. foreign affairs, i'm sure you've had a couple, geraldo. >> gretchen: whoa! that was not on the card either! that was in the book, not on the card. see you later. al gore knows exactly why the president got battered by mitt romney. did you hear this one? >> when you go to 5,000 feet -- >> exactly -- and you only have a few hours to adjust did she. >> gretchen: altitude? >> steve: the most awesome story you'll hear all day, a dog slips out of his house, starts running. where does he go?
own. the curious position taken by the obama administration. in particular, the view that the statutes should allow for liability in some foreign cases, but not work is a corporation in one country being sued in another. it did not seem like the argument had any fans of the court yesterday, but i am curious if the panelists have talked about whether that is an intermediate position. whether the court might see that as a way out of this. whether jon cash explain why this brief was not signed by his -- wide jon cash explain why this brief was not signed by his predecessor. -- whether john can explain why this brief was not signed by his predecessor. >> it is so difficult to be a government official. you have to represent all of these competing interests. yes, you want to provide lawsuits that combine the -- provide accountability for bad human rights abuses. you want to uphold international law and prevent abusive reciprocal actions. in the first round of briefing, the administration filed a brief which people applauded. yes, corporations can be held liable for violations of internationa
change from what was happening in the last two years of the bush administration. it may not have happened as fast as obama wanted, but this is a base for solid growth, this is not a blip you have had a steady trend that indicates that things are getting much better. if you look at auto sales, you have got to feel better about these things. if we can just get this fiscal cliff nonsense out of the way. if the republicans in the house in particular could be wiped out and we could get some deals together we could eliminate a lot of uncertainty. >> i want to throw in one thing as people are looking at the numbers. one thing that you'll often hear after a good report usually from republicans is more people have stopped looking for work. and i see here 418,000 more people were looking for work in september than in august. so this is not due to people dropping out of the work force. >> jamal: great. and peter can you look at private sector growth and whether or not there was -- they cut public sector -- >> actually i have seen some quick numbers here. the private sect
